for the small states. not really. we have had three small state presidents in history. bill clinton, franklin pierce. the big states always win for 32 of the 36 years as a slave holding virginian. it's also massachusetts, state two or three, depending on how you count. the next four years, a massachusetts guy. the biggest northern state and virginians, the biggest southern state. not big state/small state. we never actually have a breakdown in american history between big states and small states. the lineup is more geographic. it's coast against center. in fact, a conservative should know this. we have it more for reasons having to do with slavery. if you have a national popular vote, the south would have lost every time. it doesn't let the slave population vote. the three fifths clause. pennsylvania in 1800 has more free people than virginia, way more voters than virginia, way fewer electoral votes. it connects to "today." if you want people to participate, the electoral college dampens it. ohio gets the same number of votes. if you have direct election, you create incentives for governments

for eight year, we had a president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in our future. at the time, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said this would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that his judgment was just as bad back then as it is today. by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and we had the biggest surplus in our history instead of a deficit. we know the ideas we believe in work. we know their ideas don't work. for most of the last decade, we tried what they wanted to do, giving big tax cuts to the wealthy that we could not afford, giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free rein to do whatever they pleased. you know what we got? falling incomes, record deficits, the poorest job growth in half a century and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. so, we know what
